    Solution here on several iPad4thGen:

    - close all running apps

    doubletap button; hold icon in bar below and press all the redcircles on the dancing icons until no more are there

    - open App store

    all updates are there

    iOS 6 and 6.1

    Does not work anymore. At least with iOS 6.0.1.

    Got the badge showing 4 updates but no updates are listed. neither does the "purchased" item on the iPhone 4S.

    P.S.: same problem (no updates but has the badge) with iPad on iOS 6.0

    Still nothing with iPhone 4S 6.0. Tried lots of different ways including hard reset, soft reset, app closing, tabs switching - still has a badge but no update or purchased list.

     

    p.s.: the New iPad with 6.0.1 DID load update list today though...

    Same issue.  I have a badge for 1 update, but nothing is listed.  It wont even show the "Purchased" bar.  The other tabs work: featured, top, genius, all show content.  But the Update tab will not show anything at all.  Very frustrating... I know the update im missing is for Angry Birds Space (just got that update on my iPad3).

     

    Still no word from Apple on this??  I'm calling Bill Gates...

    Same here, updates is blank with a badge. Dear Apple, we are users, not testers or something. We are buying a device, not buying a non-paid-debugging-job.

    Reset and firmware update is NOT an option. Definitely.

     

    p.s.: still no changes

    iPhone 4  Updated to 6.1 worked for one cycle of updates  Now back to the blank screen. Shows 10 updates availlable I just CANNOT SEE them.   So frustrating.

    After I go though this, my problem solved (try at your own risk, as I'm not 100% sure this will working for everyone):

     

    1. When I had the problem, I'm running iOS 6.1 tethered jailbreak. When setting up, I'm restored from iCloud.

     

    2. I reinstalled iOS 6.1, setup as new, and seted up a new iCloud account for my iOS. Then I notice AppStore worked correct. I then switched back to my in use iCloud account, glade problem not appear. (I'm not tethered jailbreaking this time. It's looks not a jailbreaking caused problem, I just wait the untethered jailbreak.)

     

    3. So, I guess this AppStore update problem, is because the incompatibility of the backup from older iOS, and the new iOS. You may solve this problem by prevent from restore the backup that generated from older version iOS. (This is absolutely inconveniencely, but is only solution I found. For the data, iCloud stored data will not lost, like Notes and Bookmarks if you seted up to sync. Apps like Twitter, Tumblr no need to worry, as data in their server. Only problem in my case is the game data. A few game like Infinity Blade II no need to worry, as data can retrieved from iCloud. So before restore and setup your device as new, finish the game, or find a way to backup the data maybe via Cydia tweak or iFunbox. Also ensure make a iTunes back up, so if some data not restored sccesful, can go back grab the data, go to new iOS to restore data that graben.)
